Shrader Tire and Oil has been chosen as one of eight art projects this summer for the Toledo Arts Commission.
The Young Artists at Work (YAAW) program, now in its 29th year, started Monday, July 17, painting a mural on about 120-foot section of the Shrader Tire and Oil building off Sylvania Ave. The painting began after the Young Artists collaborated with each other, team leaders and Shrader Tire and Oil President and CEO Joe Shrader on the design for the mural.
The wall faces the newly renovated Chessie Circle Tour trail, which is used by joggers, bikers, roller bladers and families throughout the day and evening. About a dozen young artists are working to complete the project before the end of July.
STO officials applied to be part of the program to help celebrate 75 years in business. The Sylvania Ave. location serves as the company headquarters.
